Local Reviews

I've already give an answer to this question. This is basically a repeat question. I would've listed in the original question.

Close to the highway and amenities. Getting anywhere here in Denver is easier now where I live. Also with grocery stores, gas stations and such so close its really conveniently located.

Nice water and parks. Close to interstate. Nice amenities. Great place to raise a family if it applied

In the summer we have neighborhood block parties. And we have several park like areas that we can play or walk our dogs in.

My neighborhood is a normal one and that is what I like about it. t. There are Grocery stores close to home, and we like to go to Little Caesars for pizza. There is also restaurants in the area such as Spaghetti Factory, numerous Mexican restaurant

Where our house is located in the neighborhood. The closeness to stores, banks, restaurants. There are lots of families moving into the area and they are helping to increase the safety and wellness of the area.
